Dale Bruning, Bill Frisell, Ron Miles, Mark Patterson, Mark Simon, and Paul Romaine played a Concert honoring Jim Hall in September, 2014. We recorded the four shows - both as a video and as a CD - and have an amazing double CD coming out on our JLE label. We will have it around January 8, 2015.

We are calling it Thanks for the Memory…Jim Hall. The Dale Bruning Sextet with special guest Bill Frisell are the featured artists. Dale’s arrangements and the musicians solos, as well as their work in the ensemble, is simply breathtaking. Jim Hall died in December, 2013. We miss him and are so very grateful that he left us with such an all-encompassing legacy of music.
